Identification Translation Appraisal and Sales of Japanese Samurai Swords by David Hofhine



I generally do not buy and sell swords personally, but if you have something you're looking to sell, I can probably help you find an honest buyer.  Again, I'm no dealer, I'm just the polisher and my primary concern is helping out my clients and making sure that they are treated right.  Contact for more information on selling a single sword or an entire collection.

Please note, the blades featured on this web site are not currently in my possession, do not belong to me and are not for sale as far as I know. An absolute minimum number of blades (usually just one or two unmounted and unpolished) are kept on hand at all times to minimize liability.  -David Hofhine
